Mela 4.5 Update — New EQ Band module, Comb Filter and Envelope Follower improvements

The Mela 4.5 update brings the new EQ Band module which offers a selection of 2nd order filter types: Bell, Low Shelf, Low Cut, High Shelf, High Cut, Notch and Band Pass. It comes with standard parameters: Frequency, Gain and Q.

The Comb Filter module gains the new Mode parameter. In Time mode the Frequency parameter is replaced by the Time L and Time R parameters. These parameters set the time interval by which the left and right channels of the audio signal are delayed. And unlike the Frequency parameter, their value range is linear. Making them suitable for audio effects like Chorus, Doubler and Flanger. And if you want to use Comb Filter as an oscillator you can use the Pitch mode, which allows the delay to be controlled by the incoming Pitch signal.

Finally, the Envelope Follower module now comes with the Hold parameter making the module more capable.

EQ Band Module:

The new EQ Band module offers a selection of 2nd order filter types: Bell, Low Shelf, Low Cut, High Shelf, High Cut, Notch and Band Pass. It comes with standard parameters: Frequency, Gain and Q.

Comb Filter Module:

The module has the new Mode parameter which allows you to set the signal delay amount of the delay line in terms of frequency, time or the input Pitch signal. Depending on the type of effect you are trying to create one mode might be preferable over others.

When set to Time mode the Frequency parameter is replaced by the Time L and Time R parameters. These parameters set the time interval by which the left and right channels of the audio signal are delayed. And unlike the Frequency parameter, their value range is linear. Making them suitable for audio effects like Chorus, Doubler and Flanger.

When set to Pitch mode, the delay amount is controlled by the incoming Pitch signal. This mode is ideal when using the comb filter as an oscillator. Simply send short noise pulses on note-on events into the module.
